Spotlight on Creative Professional



Couture Creations, the innovators behind the world’s first universally compatible combined hot foil and die cutting system GoPress & Foil, are to release an exclusive range of cut foil emboss dies and hot foil stamps featuring designs by UK craft expert John Bloodworth, Gentleman Crafter, on Create and Craft TV Friday 22nd March at 11am.

Andrew Wightman, Couture Creations, commented, ‘Couture Creations keeps an active look out in the international card making / scrapbooking market for talented designers and crafters. We had been watching John for some time and just knew he would be able to design a unique and desirable collection that is a must have for the Go Press and Foil system.
We are particularly delighted that John worked with our ethos of innovation and creativity, providing a truly versatile range of product – they look amazing!’

The first collection will feature nine square format cut foil emboss designs and a set of nine texture tile hot foil stamps.

A world first.

This is the first collection of any die or hot foil stamp featuring designs by John Bloodworth, Gentleman Crafter, to be released, anywhere in the world!

Designed for creativity, being a multi discipline crafter John has designed this first collection of Cut/Foil/Emboss dies and hot foil stamps to give their loving owner maximum usability and creativity. They can be used with and without hot foils to create backgrounds for greetings cards, to create elements for scrapbook pages and split down in order to be used as creative assets in mixed media projects too!

Value for money that keeps on giving. Having already outlined the versatility and usability users are assured of value for money however to give further value, these dies and hot foil stamps will work alongside your existing collection of dies and stamps too.

The range has been styled to work in conjunction with other popular styles, trends and iconography in order to offer a range that will continue to blend and coordinate with your growing craft stash no matter what your style now, or in the future!

Versatility built in – use with YOUR die cutting machine.

Cut Foil and Emboss dies can be cut with most die cutting machines so, if you don’t want the foiled look, simply run through your machine dry for a cut and embossed look or ink them up for a letter pressed style.

Texture Tiles – Upgrade plain paper from blah to bling!

Using the ethos established during the launch of the GoPress and Foil system, the hot foil texture tiles have been designed to upgrade existing plain die cuts and paper shapes from blah to bling!

Add a touch of foiling to flowers, butterflies, geometric shapes and more – you can also layer the designs and use them independently for truly outstanding foiled results!

Creative Eraser Tool – Ergonomic and battery powered, this tool will expand your creative prowess with hot foiling. Clean up over foiling or get creative by using the creative eraser tool freehand or through stencils to remove areas of foiling for a totally unique look!

Oh, and if you enjoy sketching and drawing, it will work as a regular eraser too!

John Bloodworth commented, ‘I am super excited to have been asked to create this range with Couture Creations as their GoPress & Foil range has been a game-changer in the industry since its launch.’

This range launches in Australia on March 2nd at their Creative Inspirations Live event; late March in the UK via Create and Craft TV and will then be available worldwide from April.
